Kanye West’s latest album, Jesus Is King
, has debuted at the top of the Billboard 200 charts. This ties Kanye with
Eminem, who now both hold the record of releasing nine straight albums to debut at no. 1. DOPE!!!
Jesus Is King
had 264,000 equivalent units moved, with 109,000 of that number being actual physical copies bought with the rest of the numbers tallied up via streaming. Jesus Is King
was streamed just under 197 million times by the end of October 31 when the numbers were officially gathered.
Jay-Z currently holds the records of most no. 1 first-week album sales position but did not achieve that consecutively as Kanye and Eminem have.
